Table 2 Comparison of IVIG resistance and CALs of KD between patients with and without neurological involvement

From: Neurological involvement in Kawasaki disease: a retrospective study

  Neurological involvement (n = 80) Group B (n = 512)
Somnolence (n = 40, 50.1%) Convulsion (n = 14,17.5%) Headache (n = 13, 16.3%) Extreme irritability (n = 21, 26.3%) Positive sign of meningeal irritation (n = 15, 18.8%) Bulgin fontanel (n = 7, 8.8%) Facial nerve palsy (n = 1,1.3%)
IVIG resistance, n(%) 14(35.0) a 3(21.4) b 4(30.8) b 6(28.6) b 4(26.7) b 0(0.00) b 0(0.00) b 70(13.9)
CALs, n(%) 4(10.0) b 2(14.3) b 0(0.00) b 3(14.3) b 4(26.7) b 1(14.3) b 0(0.00) b 50(9.6)
  1. IVIG Intravenous immunoglobulin, CALs Coronary artery lesions
  2. aThere was a statistic significant difference between neurological involvement and group B
  3. bThere was no statistic significant difference between neurological involvement and group B
